Great spirit at networking lunch

Great spirit at networking lunch Image

Docklands business people got into the festive spirit at our sixth Docklands News Networking Lunch on December 17.

Though numbers were slightly down due to conflicting Christmas lunches, more than 60 people attended the relaxed lunch at Platform 28 in Bourke St, with the last guest leaving at 4.30pm.

Docklands News editor Shane Scanlan said the event was going from strength to strength.

“There seemed to be more urgency from the people who attended,” Mr Scanlan said.

“We actually had a quicker response than ever before and seats filled up very quickly in the first few weeks after sending out the invite on email.”

Mr Scanlan said the event seemed to be gaining momentum with each lunch and the feedback continued to be positive.

“We are definitely achieving what we set out to achieve, and that is to create connections so people can do business together,” he said.

Mr Scanlan said the vibe on the day was positive, with everyone happily making new contacts and he couldn’t wait to throw an even more successful lunch in March when the event takes to the water for the first time.
